Police chief resigns over racist email of naked women: ‘Don’t the blacks know white lives matter too?!’

Published

on

Chief David Caron of Glastonbury, Connecticut resigned as police chief on Wednesday, Dec. 14 after he sent a racist photo of a naked woman from his email account, the New York Daily News reports.

He had sent the photos on three separate occasions, Town Manager Richard J. Johnson told the Hartford Courant. “He notified me in writing this morning, confirming his intention to retire,” he said.

Johnson added, “He indicated to me that he had sent some emails that were inappropriate and he had made a mistake.”

The Daily News reported that one of Caron’s emails included a photo with a group of nine models with their arms in the air. His email read, “I just can’t believe how this ‘Hands up, don’t shoot’ crap is spreading!”

Above that caption, the email read, “When is all this senseless violence going to end??? Don’t the blacks know white lives matter, too?!!!” Other photos the police chief sent included naked women in cowboy hats.

Caron spoke with the Courant on Wednesday. Speaking on nude photos, he told the outlet, “I view it like a Playboy layout.” He added, “I don’t search [for] this stuff [online].”

“I should be holding myself to a higher standard than this,” he said. “It’s out of character for me.”

Trump considering withdrawal from 68-year-old treaty with Japan: report

Published

on

President Donald Trump has been privately talking about withdrawing from the postwar defense treaty with Japan, according to three sources familiar with the matter.

Trump is telling confidants the treaty is unfair to the U.S. because it promises to help if Japan was ever attacked, but doesn't require Japan to come to America's defense, the sources told Bloomberg.

So far, the president hasn't taken any step toward pulling out of the treaty, which was signed in 1951, and administration officials insist that move would be highly unlikely.

Rep. Ted Lieu: Impeachment is coming — and so is a Democratic president

Published

on

Donald Trump recently called “impeachment” a “dirty, filthy, disgusting word,” but his continued stonewalling of legitimate congressional oversight requests are moving more and more House Democrats to embrace that “filthy” concept. That was the very point made by Rep. Ted Lieu of California, a progressive Democrat who sits on the House Judiciary Committee during our recent conversation on “Salon Talks.” That committee would be the starting point for an actual impeachment inquiry of the president.

New report targets 15 House Democrats who ‘deserve’ progressive primary challengers

Published

on

As progressive candidates continue to announce their intentions to oust corporate Democrats, a new report names 15 House Democrats to unseat in primary challenges.

Published Monday by the left-leaning group RootsAction, the new report is entitled Bad Blues: Some of the House Democrats Who Deserve to Be 'Primaried.'

The list, the report notes, "is by no means exhaustive—only illustrative."

"There may well be a Democratic member of Congress near you not included here who serves corporate interests more than majority interests, or has simply grown tired or complacent in the never-ending struggles for social, racial, and economic justice as well as environmental sanity and peace," the report notes. "Perhaps you live in a district where voters are ready to be inspired by a progressive primary candidate because the Democrat in Congress is not up to the job."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
